The Nintendo Switch had an incredible 2018, and this is another instance where Nintendo has done really well to bring a well renowned third party franchise to the hybrid console. An armored character silhouette stood over it before reigniting it and the title was then revealed.

The clarification was reported by Game Informer, who said that Bandai Namco has confirmed there are now no plans to release the Dark Souls trilogy box set "in the Americas". Naturally, and given the bad initial state of the PC version of the first Dark Souls game, a lot of PC gamers wondered whether this would be a free upgrade for them.

With the details Bandai Namco has released so far, players can look forward to a completely enhanced version of the game.

The action role-playing game from developer FromSoftware and publisher Bandai Namco originally launched on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in late 2011 as a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls. But the key here - and this is big for every company working on Switch ports - is that Switch is growing the audience for gaming instead of just drawing attention away from PS4, Xbox One, or PC.

A Dark Souls: Remaster has always been something that the community has clamored for, and initial reaction on the internet is incredibly positive. Excited to play Dark Souls again? Nintendo has confirmed this to be the case with their Dark Souls: Remastered page.

The game is slated for release later this year, on May 25th for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. A knight soon approaches the campfire and ignites it as the words "Dark Souls Remastered" come into view. The user shared a pic where the date and the game were mentioned. We know that.
